Newly Found Plant from the garden
I've been wondering what plant this is since the leaves are very similar to Piper Betle leaves but they have different scent.
I finally found out what it was when I planned to buy May Chang Essential Oil and the online store where I usually buy my oils provide the picture. So May Chang =Litsea Cubeba=Kemukus in Bahasa Indonesia. There are a lot of skin benefits of this plant, I'll do more online research about this. I agree with everyone who likes the scent of May Chang, it's a pleasant scent but not overpowering. I already infuse it in coconut oil, when infused the color of the oil is bright green. But in Cold Process Soap, it barely gives any color :(
